My Applique Group

Today's Show~and~tell at our applique group~
Bobbie holding her quilt and her grandaughter.

Bobbie made this needle book and gave it to Miriam. Here it is opened.

This is the needle book Bobbie made closed.

Bag Bobbie made.

Little drawstring bag Bobbie made.

Another bag Bobbie made.

Jeanne's patchwork Scottie.

Slightly larger Scottie also made by Jeanne.

Mary's Quilt.

Mary's quilt. She needs to fuse on photos of her dog.

Miriam's daughter made this beautiful beaded scissors case for her.

Phoebe's block.

The  quilted envelope I made to put the blocks in.

We each made an applique lady block that we surprised Bobbie with today. Missing from the photo is Cenia (so Mary is holding both her block and Cenia's block), and Phoebe was gone, so Bobbie is holding Phoebe's block. Bobbie was surprised and delighted by all these blocks. I had organized this because Bobbie is so generous sharing her home, her talents and makes us stuff all the time, so I thought she would like something handmade from each of us. Bobbie had admired these appliqued ladies when she first saw them, so I knew that's what we had to make for her.  I made 6 of these ladies for myself and turned them into sewing machine covers. Which I posted on my blog~  Patchouli Moon Studio with permission from Carol of mamacjt, who designed these applique ladies. Everyone had fun making them and they all came out so great! Can't wait to see the beautiful quilt Bobbie will make with them.

Thank you Daryl for organizing this heartfelt gift, all of you ladies are so amazing. You didn't post a picture of the beautiful folder you made to hold all my blocks. I was very very surprised and very very very delighted with each and everyone of my wonderful blocks. I am so lucky to have such special friends! Bobbie

Bobbie, I posted the quilted envelope/folder and the individual blocks today. I had taken photos of them before our group met, and my computer connection was running slowly last night. They are all on there now. Enjoy!
